I started getting this sharp localized pain in my lower right chest area on one of the ribs. It was hurting when I coughed or bent. The doctor advised me to take 1 Acuvin tablet 3 times a day. I have taken 3 days dose till now and the pain is less than before but still on coughing I"m having acute pain at one spot. Well, I got the chest x-ray report yesterday and it says all is normal and on visiting the doctor he asked me to continue with the medicine as pain will take little time to go.
